Free – £6.50

Farm Park Access
There’s loads to do in our farm park with pedal go-karts, buggies, tractors, adventure playground, indoor sandpit, pedal boats and more.

Tractor Rides
A tractor ride is now included in the admission ticket price and there are three time slots to choose from. Tractor rides are at 10:45am, 1:15pm and 3:45pm each day and feature a 10 min ride with a drop-off at pumpkin patch.​

The Scarecrow Trail!
Come along to find our scary scarecrows as you make your way around the farm. There are clues to find on your way and a prize for a successful completion of the trail too. The Scarecrow Trail is included in the admission price and the map also includes puzzles too!

​​​​​​PYO Pumpkin Patch
We grow over 3000 pumpkins here at Church Farm and you can choose one to purchase on your visit if you’d like to. Access to the pumpkin patch is for customers with Family Fright Festival tickets only.​

Pumpkins are not included in the admission price but are priced at between £2 and £5 (while stocks last!) We will run out of pumpkins at some point so if pumpkin picking is important to you then please do book one of our earlier dates.

Beastly Barrel Train Rides
Barrel train rides are running in two time slots each day from 11:45am – 12:15pm and 2:15pm – 3:15pm. It’s now possible to book individual tickets at the admission kiosk priced at £2.00 per person.

Do be sure to buy your barrel train ride tickets at the kiosk before queuing at the ride entrance.

Sheep Racing
Experience the excitement of our sheep racing every day at 3:30pm.

Ewe’ll have a great time cheering your sheep home to victory!

​Join Sher-baa, Red Ram and the others to see who will win the ultimate Championsheep.​

Animal Feeding
We have lots of animals to feed here at the farm. All bags of feed are 75p each and you can buy these when you book tickets.

​Some of the animals you can feed (subject to availability) include alpacas, goats, sheep, hens, emu, ponies and cows.

It’s usually possible to buy animal feed from the kiosk on the day if you’ve forgotten to pre-book it too.
